With . With the onset of this new rash, you should give your doctor a call. It may or may not be related to your uveitis depending on what it looks like and could give clues to the cause of your uveitis. I am glad that your doctor sent testing since uveitis can occasionally be a sign of underlying illness. Even though uveitis can be associated with other illnesses (especially autoimmune disease) it can affect healthy people, too. I've attached a site with some basic information about uveitis. In the meantime, give your doctor a call about your rash. Good luck!
I'm . I'm sorry you're having problems with your eyes. The cause of uveitis can't be determined in many cases. When confronted by a case of uveitis, doctors typically check for the more common causes, such as autoimmune diseases and infections, but these tests are frequently normal. Occasionally, uveitis is the first sign of an underlying disorder, such as crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis, and other symptoms of that disorder may not appear for many months. The rash on your cheeks and neck is certainly suggestive of some condition that hasn't yet declared itself. If you haven't followed up with your doctor, i suggest you do so, as the rash might raise additional diagnostic possibilities. Although you've no doubt done some homework already, i've attached a mayo clinic link that provides more information about uveitis. I hope things settle down soon! http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/uveitis/ds00677.
